This book is about a 6th grader named Scott. He is the new kid at his school. At the end of almost every day, this big, mean bully picks on him. His name is Jimmy Dolan. Jimmy calls Scott “The Brain” because he is pretty much the smartest kid in his class. Chris stands up for Scott, and tells him to leave him alone. Chris is the quarterback of the school’s football team. He turns out to be Scott’s first friend.
After school that day, when Chris comes over, Scott shows Chris that he can kick the football perfectly. After talking for a while, Chris tells Scott that he has dyslexia. Scott decides to join the football team because of his kicking and decides to be Chris’ reading tutor.
The rest of the book is about the football season, the tutoring, and my favorite part, an unexpected surprise ending.
I would recommend this book to people who are bully magnets, and people who like football.
